Autumn Sudoku Puzzles

The easy autumn sudoku puzzles include fall images that are fairly easy for kids to draw (especially if they use a different colored pencil crayon for each one).

Sudoku is an increasingly popular Japanese number puzzle where a 9x9 grid must be filled in with no numbers repeating in a row, column or square.  I find the full fledged Sudoku to be too challenging for most elementary school children so have designed a modified 4x4 grid version with fun themed images (to be honest, I still find the 4x4 sometimes takes me some thought to complete!)

The "easy" Sudoku puzzle is appropriate for preschool and kindergarten students.

The regular Sudoku puzzle is appropriate for grade 1 to 3 students and is still a fun themed activity for students in grades 4+.
